love & marriage revisited

Happy April, everyone! This year seems to be flying by, doesn't it? It is so nice to have warm weather again and I am looking forward to the green that will be appearing soon - I hope!


The beginning of the month means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge and this month we are revisiting the Love & Marriage set. I did a bit of a limited supply challenge for the cards I am sharing today. I stamped with a friend of mine and just took a few things with me to work with. It doesn't take much to create beautiful cards!


For this first card, I stamped the tree image in Classic Kraft ink onto the white cardstock. I trimmed it out with a bit of extra space under the image and that gives it a sort of instant photo look, doesn't it? I layered the stamped image onto a piece of the Sheer Basics Vellum patterned paper and onto a kraft card base.


I used the tiny Heart Prints die cut from Pure Poppy cardstock to add the 2 hearts to the tree and then stitched through them with my sewing machine. The sentiments in the Love & Marriage set are so pretty and I love the little sentiment in the tiny rectangle frames. I took the "true love" sentiment and created a little tab to add to the edge of the stamped image on the card. i love this fun little detail!


For this next card, I die cut more hearts with the Heart Prints dies. I layered a Fresh Snow linen cardstock heart over the top of one I had die cut with the vellum. I arranged the hearts into a grid design on the square card front and stamped the 4th heart with the image from the Love & Marriage set with Classic Kraft ink.


I stamped the sentiment over the stamped heart and then added just a few rhinestones and another little tab with the "love you" framed sentiment. With the summer wedding season quickly approaching, it will be nice to have this sweet card to add to my stash.


Make sure to visit the rest of the Papertrey Ink senior design team to see the projects that they created with the Love & Marriage set: BetsyDawnMaile, and Melissa.
